Catapult High-Level Synthesis and Verification

The broadest portfolio of hardware design solutions for C++ and SystemC-based High-Level Synthesis (HLS). Catapult's physically-aware, multi-VT mode, with Low-Power estimation and optimization, plus a range of leading Verification solutions make HLS from Siemens more than just "C to RTL".

  • Reduces verification cost by 80%
  • Production proven flows with thousands of designs
  • Formally verifies designs despite language & abstraction differences

Catapult High-Level Synthesis and Verification Fact Sheet 

To achieve the maximum productivity gain from a C++/SystemC HLS methodology, it is necessary to have the performance and capacity to handle today’s large designs coupled with a comprehensive flow through verification and implementation.

Catapult High-Level Synthesis (HLS) has been proven in production design flows with 1,000s of designs and the resulting RTL adheres to the strictest corporate design guidelines and ECO flows. In addition to Catapult HLS, only Catapult has integrated High-Level Verification tools and methodologies that enable designers to complete their verification signoff at the C++ level with fast closure for RTL.

Catapult High-Level Synthesis Solutions

Catapult Synthesis solutions from Siemens deliver C++ and SystemC language support, FPGA and ASIC independence, ASIC power estimation and optimization plus the latest in Physically aware multi-VT area and performance optimization.

C++/SystemC Synthesis

A comprehensive HLS solution covering all your needs for the most complex ASIC and FPGA designs. 

Low-Power Solutions

When it comes to early architecture power estimation, plus optimizing for low-power ASIC RTL, Catapult has what you need.

Physically Aware HLS

As geometries shrink, Catapult keeps pace with design portability, physical downstream data, and exceptional Quality of Results.

Catplut High-Level Verification Solutions

Everything you need to accelerate your High-Level Verification flow. Reduce Verification time and costs by up to 80% leveraging Design Checking, Code and Functional Coverage plus Formal.

Catapult Design Checker

Lint and formal analysis to validate your HLS designs for correctness before synthesis. Avoid design problems and QoR issues that can occur when coding for HLS.

Catapult Coverage

Provides HLS-aware code coverage including statement, branch, FEC, toggle and array access coverage. SV-inspired functional coverage with support for covergroups, coverpoints, bins and crosses.

Catapult Formal Verification Tools

Formally find mistakes, ambiguities and undesirable design issues, user constraints problems early in the HLS process. Even with differences in timing, and interfaces. Catapult Formal enables verification and coverage closure flow.

SLEC System

Check the correctness of RTL against your High-Level models using SLEC. Enabling proof that specification and implementation are identical despite differences in language, timing or abstraction.
